Hitcham’s church bells returned on 21st October – in the pouring rain!

There was a great sense of achievement, and wonderful that we now have a ring of 8 bells. Our Rector, Tiffer, named the new bell in a short ceremony and welcomed the others back with these words:

“Lord we thank you for these bells, for the ministry that they have had for many generations, for the new bell that has just been donated to us from another church, and for those who rang out your praise for many generations, for every service of Holy Communion that they have rung for, for every wedding that they have rejoiced at, for every baptism that they have gloried in and for every funeral that they have mourned.”
